Snow

| No Comments
We have been getting a series of rolling snowstorms for the last two weeks -- a couple of inches, it warms up a bit, it cools off, another couple inches, lather, rinse, repeat... National Weather Service is looking at two more days of snow for this area. Mt. Baker ski area has 304 inches of base. This is 25 feet. The chair lifts are 30 feet above ground hence this warning at the end of the snow report:
We don't mean to sound like a broken record here, but it looks like this should be another great day for skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Baker! We?re expecting a bit of a weather break today, with some light snowfall and possible sun breaks. Mt. Baker is in the thick of an incredible storm cycle, having received over 130 inches of snowfall in the past 8 days and 179 inches for the month of March so far! And initial forecasts for next week are looking stellar, with more big storms forecasted to roll in around Monday night with continued low freezing levels. Looks like you might want to start planning a midweek escape to the mountains!

All instruction programs and standard rentals are available at the upper, Heather Meadows lodge today.

DO NOT JUMP FROM CHAIR LIFTS; this could cause the chair lift to de-rope and cause serious injury to other people. Unloading a chairlift in non-designated unloading zones is a class 3 felony. If caught, you WILL BE arrested in accordance with Washington State Laws.
That would be tempting -- just a couple foot drop and you don't have to deal with the confusion in the unloading area. Not a good idea. They are serious about safety...
